I got 12 pullets last night, aged 7 weeks old. They have been on medicated chick starter and went into a clean (bleached) brooder. I found this poo this morning. I looked at a poop page that someone put up in a coccidia thread that I searched for and what I see in my brooder looks like the normal, intestine shedding poop, but I want to be sure it's alright. These birds are VERY flighty, absolutely scared of human contact and very frightened. Anyway, I can get a poop sample to my vet tomorrow, should I treat for coccidia now, or wait for conformation? Thank you. Update: Well so far all 12 of my pullets are responding to the Corid. I was preparing myself to find the worse two dead by now, but I guess they are fighting it. I have read that Coccidia can cause paleness, about how long should they be pale? This entire flock is very anemic looking, we're talking white combs. Only one has a nice pink comb. These poor chicks were brooded in a dark room with a single light bulb, never seeing the light of day. Could the pale-ness be from that too? I am new to chickens, these were sold to me as 7 week olds, but to me, they look like 4 week olds The person selling them was finding them new homes because their partner didn't want them anymore and I have a sneaking suspicion that maybe feed was held to save on money. There was 25 brooded together with one feeder/waterer. Once they are done with the Corid treatment, should I give them any special vitamins to give them a boost? I'm just really worried about how anemic they are. Thank you.
